I feel like it's time for me to add to this thread
. It's been 5 years! Was diagnosed at 40, stage IIIC as you can see by my signature. Had my latest CT scan in April and still all clear. I do have to have another colonoscopy soon, BUTT happy to be here and give some positivity to all of you newly diagnosed people. It's a struggle both mentally and physically during the diagnosis phase, then the treatment phase, surgery, after effects, etc. I haven't been as active on here as I once was, life gets in the way, which is a good thing.
Positive thoughts to all who are in the midst of this...
And thanks to everyone on this board, especially long term members who have helped me and continue to help as new people start their journey here.
